Good news, Virgo - today you'll have the guts to make a difference when others won't act. #life  
As for the people who seem to be in love with themselves, there's something oddly attractive about them at first. If you accidentally become enamored, you're not to be blamed as long as the fiery Sagittarius moon and the Leo sun rule the sky. Just know that it's hard to get back home when you're traveling down a one-way street.

As the moon moves from Sagittarius, the station that sees greener grass on the other side, to ambitious Capricorn, try to stay focused on what makes you (and only you) happy.   #life  
There is no one standard of success that applies to all people. The people who wonder why "so-and-so" hasn't "made it big" are frustrated in their own lives. As the moon moves from Sagittarius, the station that sees greener grass on the other side, to ambitious Capricorn, try to stay focused on what makes you (and only you) happy.

We are Saskatoon's daily newspaper
Introduction

On Friday, October 17, 1902, G. Wesley Norman and his brother, Leonard, tugged at their Washington hand press to produce 1,000 copies of Saskatoon's newspaper, The Phoenix. The weekly was produced in a small frame building on 21st Street.

The paper was then bought and sold a couple of times and was reborn in 1907 as the Daily Phoenix. It was published three times a week until 1909 when it became a daily and was renamed the Saskatoon Capital in 1910.

In 1912 the paper was sold again to W. F. Herman and Talmage Lawson and its name was changed from the Capital to the Saskatoon Daily Star.

During the 1920's a series of sales and purchases between newspaper owners in Saskatoon and Regina left Saskatoon with two daily papers, Saskatoon Daily Star and The Daily Phoenix.

Then, on January 1st, 1928, the Sifton family, publishers of the Winnipeg Free Press bought and amalgamated the papers to form the Saskatoon Star-Phoenix.

The Siftons owned the paper until it was purchased by Hollinger Newspapers in 1996. Hollinger was purchased by CanWest Global Communications Corp. in 2000. The StarPhoenix is now a division of Postmedia Network Inc.
